what a treat!!!!
i have just had the pleasure of taking a Mk 1 Escort RS2000 for a spin. an extremely rare car in this country and this one had been modified...a bit. basically sset up for round-the-houses events, i took this thing for a rap on some quiet rural roads. it was a mates car (and he was woth me) so i didnt cane the ring off it, but what a drive!
new cars do so many things so well, and are so smooth and comfortable about it all, that driving this car, which was a lot like a go kart, was sensational. to be able to feel the road through the steering wheel, and the seat, and have something that sat like a kart and went around corners like a kart was awesome.
but above everything else, nothing, and i mean nothing, sounds like a pair of webers at 6000rpm.
i am now totally wrecked. i need my RS back...and i need two 40's on it. i wont be able to sleep now.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
